"The police officer kicked over a candle and said ‘Awww, too bad he’s dead,’" White claimed outside of the courtroom Wednesday. "Why would he do that?"

Other family members said the officer laughed, tore down memorial posters and stomped on more candles.

A police officer declined to immediately respond Wednesday when asked whether the officer who shot Desean was present at the vigil or is now on active duty.

We can’t even mourn in peace.

  • Do not forget Michael Brown
  • Do not forget how the media dehumanized him and tried to justify his murder
  • Do not forget how peaceful protests were painted as savage riots
  • Do not forget police armed with military grade weapons terrorized and arrested black civilians
  • Do not forget Darren Wilson being awarded over $200,000 in fundraiser donations for murdering an unarmed black child
  • Do not forget that this system was not built to defend us, but to control us
  • Do not forget Ferguson
